Can i be knocked out for a Chalazion removal surgery?


I have to get a chalazion removed from my left eye and i've been looking up the procedure and it sounds really painful, not to mention having to get a needle in my eyelid. I hateee needles and would rather just be put to sleep for the surgery...is that possible?

Is there a remedy for Chalazion for a 3 year old?


My niece recently had a surgery for the chalazion on the left eye and now she is in an early stage on the right eye. We tried warm compress but that did not help with the left eye for a month and then she had to get a surgery for it. I don't want that to happen with the eye. Please help if anyone has this problem.

The warm compresses are still your best option.  (+ info)

If I used eye makeup on my chalazion, should I throw it out?


I used MAC eyeshadow and Urban Decay eyeliner on my chalazion, but should I toss it? My chalazion got worse overnight and is the makeup now infected with the bacteria? And is it possible that my eye makeup caused my chalazion?

What is the difference between a stye on eyelid and chalazion?


I have one of them under my eyelid, so it is not external, BUT internal. It is like a pimple.
----------

as stated on Yahoo Health Answers:

A stye is an infection that causes a tender red lump on the eyelid. Most styes occur along the edge of the eyelid. When a stye occurs inside the eyelid, it is called an internal hordeolum. A chalazion is a lump in the eyelid. Chalazia may look like styes, but they are usually larger and may not be painful.

Styes are caused by a bacterial infection. Usually the bacteria grow in the root (follicle) of an eyelash. An internal hordeolum is caused by infection in one of the tiny oil glands inside the eyelid.

A chalazion develops when an oil gland in the eyelid becomes blocked. If an internal hordeolum doesn't drain and heal, it can turn into a chalazion.

A stye usually starts as a red bump that looks like a pimple along the edge of the eyelid.

As the stye grows, the eyelid becomes swollen and painful, and the eye may water.
Most styes swell for about 3 days before they break open and drain.
Styes usually heal in about a week.
A chalazion forms a firm lump or cyst under the skin of the eyelid.

Chalazia grow more slowly than styes. If a chalazion gets large enough, it may interfere with vision.
The inflammation and swelling may spread to the area surrounding the eye.
Chalazia often go away in a few months without treatment.  (+ info)

What are the differences between between a chalazion and a stye?


Give as much details as possible, and if you could, a source.

Thanks.
sorry bout the title
----------

A cyst in the eyelid that is caused by inflammation of a blocked meibomian gland, usually on the upper eyelid. Chalazions differ from styes in that they are usually painless apart from the tenderness caused when they swell up, and in size (chalazia tend to be larger than styes). A chalazion may eventually disappear on its own after a few months, though more often than not, some treatment is necessary.  (+ info)

Have you ever had surgery for a chalazion?


My four year old is having a chalazion drained out. I know that it's minor and it will only take 15 minutes, but I'm her mother and I'm worried. Any advice?
----------

I didn't but my sister did. The worst part of it is the injection if she is going to be awake for it, but even that is only like a quick sting. Recovery is very quick and easy. Try not to worry, but I do understand that part of it. These links have more information about chalazions, what causes them, and how to treat them.

How can I treat my inner chalazion quickly at home?


It is under my eyelid.
----------

Hot compresses several times a day. My doctor also recommended using Johnson's Baby shampoo to wash the lids - just a dab.

If it doesn't go away, get a referral from your doctor to see an eye specialist. He/she will lance, drain and probably some salve for healing. It sounds horrid, yet it feels so much better after lanced.

My doctor also told me to keep my fingers away from my eyes - the germs plug tear duct and bam, a sty or chalazion.

Good luck  (+ info)

1. Is it alright to put concealer on when having a chalazion? ?


2. Can you get rid of chalazion with warm compress alone?
3. Is tea helpful for getting rid of chalazion?

Chalazion is a lump in the eyelid caused by oils trap in the glands.
----------

I don't think the concealer will hurt. A chalazion is a small bump in the eyelid caused by a blockage of a tiny oil gland and will often disappear without treatment within a month or so.

The primary treatment is application of warm compresses for 10-15 minutes at least 4 times a day. This may soften the hardened oils blocking the duct and promote drainage and healing. If the chalazion continues to get bigger, it may need to be surgically removed. This is usually done from underneath the eyelid to avoid a scar on the skin. If the chalazion disappears for a while but keeps coming back you should see a doctor about it.
